The Importance of Securing Your Television
We live in the age of technology, and while our computers and cell phones seem to get smaller, our television sets keep getting bigger and wider. Driven by the desire to have the best picture and sound quality, many people continue to buy a larger and flatter one as soon as it hits the stores.
What many people donߴt realize is that thereߴs a danger to buying these ultra thin TVs. Many flat screen television set owners have young children. They like to sit close or directly under the TV. A lot of these children also like to climb on furniture and have yet to realize the dangers of their actions. A small child doesnߴt have to do much to cause a large television to tip over. Simply bumping into it or rocking whatever itߴs sitting on top of can cause the television to fall down.
Even if a television set has a stand to help it stand upright, still very little effort is required to cause it to come tumbling down on an unsuspecting child. The typical flat screen television has a narrow center of gravity. Combined with its weight and other heavy additions like accessories, the damaged caused by this falling object is great.
A flat screen doesnߴt necessarily have to have anyone touch it; other things can cause it to fall like an earthquake, for example. Suppose thereߴs a tornado or someone slams a door extremely hard. There wouldnߴt be anything to keep the flat screen TV from falling and injuring children and pets as well as resulting in extensive property damage.
What can be done to keep the entire family safe? There are numerous options available to the flat screen owner. You can purchase a wall mount or you can buy a strap to keep the TV securely in place. For a small price, you get peace of mind knowing that youߴre helping to prevent the death or serious injury of your child.
